Use of cryptographic functions from OpenSSL's libcrypto

I wonder why OpenJDK doesn't use OpenSSL for implementing the cryptographic functions. On OpenSSL the algorithms are HW accelerated on several platforms.

Is it due to licensing issues? I ask because I intend on implementing SHA for PPC64 but then I considered having this integration, if possible.

Thanks in advance
